Wasn't sure where to put this, if there is a more fitting forum, you are welcome to move this topic. Thank you for reading.
Scientists have discovered many things in recent years. First, the Darwinian concept of survival of the fittest and that the preservation of that process is in inherently in human nature. Second, the Universe is quite old, about 13 billion years. Third, we are a type zero civilization, this means we have not yet became a type I and thus do not yet consume 100% of the earth's energy. Fourth, the Universe is expanding not just at a steady rate, but at an increasingly accelerated rate, exponentially over time. Fifth, in the 1970's humanity sent the Arecibo message, traveling in a spherical wave through space at the speed of light. If there is a probe from a Type II civilization within 100 light years, in 100 years, they will be able to find us. And lastly, we have discovered that the only way to achieve Type I status is to reject survival of the fittest and use technology to help all of the weak become equally as strong as everyone else in every way for total equality even physically and neurologically due to nano scale surgery
The problem we face is a 100 percent certainty that, through terrorism, we will not accept a Type I civilization because it is impossible for humans to reject Social Darwinism in the form of the monetary institution, the final bar that separates the strong and the weak through wealth and subsequent status based on purchasing power. The monetary system will eventually hit a bell curve, resulting in a global financial calamity, where everyone will have zero purchasing power and therefore order will collapse and the nukes will start flying, planetary suicide will be committed.
There is a 100% certainty, that, in roughly 100 years, without alien intervention from a Type II Civilization, upon receiving the Arecibo message, humanity will destroy itself and never achieve Type I status. However, the problem with an Type II Civ's probe receiving the message before human extinction is unlikely, as the message on travels at the speed of light and space is growing larger. The expansion of the universe at it's current age, will make it unlikely for the Alien probe to pick us up. This is because, perhaps a few billion years ago, the radio waves wouldn't have had to travel over even 25 light years before it reached the Alien probe, and in that case, the Type II Civ could save us and help us to, in fact, become Type I.
Types of Civilizations explained.
And I would like to add an unneseccary addendum on my purely speculative, almost an overly optimistic agnostic, theism.
Any planet that has as much pollution as the earth will sound very different from other planets due to the "corrupted" electric-field oscillations of the planet. If our Type Zero Civilization didn't use dead plants for energy, but, say, geothermal energy and tidal energy and wind and solar energy, than there would be no pollution tainting earth's atmosphere through heating and crippling ozone effects; and, subsequently, the earth's "sound" wouldn't be so hard-on-the-ears when compared to that of other inhabitable "green zone" planets of similar size, as it very well may be. Such a civilization wouldn't have trouble achieving Type I status.
The eerie sounds of the
after being converted to audio by a radio-wave-transmitter, could, in my mind, be a way for us to know that the Grand Designer is real if we do in fact end up destroying ourselves. That is an encouraging thought, perhaps it has already made a way for our quantum particle-wave consciousnesses, that are essentially our conscious spirits or ghosts, to mold into the cosmos and join it in a way-so that our sacrifice can both teach type II civs the importance of equality, a lesson which may in fact allow them to become Type III, which might serve the purpose of furthering their ascension to the Grand Designer's Type IV-ish status, and still allow us to not go into complete nothingness.
JoeRoccoCassara got a reaction from CraigD in The Venus Project - Should We Replace The Monetary System?
Wikipedi: The Venus Project
The monetary system will be the death of us, we need a resource-based economy, not a money based economy, that is the future. Jacque Fresco didn't pull a resource-based economy idea out of his butt either, this is a vision a hundred years in the making.
Some of you should watch
. Others will think is conspiracy gibberish, they would think anything that "questions" the role of something as "unquestionably" critical and visibly operating within our lives as the monetary system is, would be completely false conspiracy bull-hockey. However, in reality, money is a completely obsolete institution. Believe what you want, it's got to go eventually, and I am going to donate twenty dollars to the Venus Project every week of my working life until it builds the city.
New money is created out of thin air, disregarding resources, stealing the value of the preexisting money; therefore, purchasing power goes down. Eventually, production is way up, employment is way down, and purchasing power is practically non-existent. Enter the Gaussian Monetary Bell Curve.
JoeRoccoCassara got a reaction from Michaelangelica in Obesity: Why are we getting fat? :epizza:
We are mainly getting fat because anyone can provoke dopamine food cues, which trigger cravings for food as opposed to a need to eat. There is no limit to how potent these cravings in dopamine food cues can become over time with constant consumption of salt and sugar.
There rare cases of virus and thyroid problems, but the neurological/dopamine food cues are the real problem.

I think your just a def critic who believes we will never have enough energy for anything, and you also believe we can't advance because we don't have the patience or cooperation.
You and many other members on this forum believe in a def rant of, 'There's no energy! There's no energy!"
I think you are mistaken.
Seriously, everything I pull out you pull out a shitload of flaws no one really cares about.
But I suppose, that if we don't care about these flaws, than it will never happen. But the thing is we do, do you see?

From 6th Grade to the end of 7th grade I gained 80 pounds.
I am in 10th Grade now, I weigh just shy of 200 pounds, I'm only 5-11, I run 8 laps around a quarter mile track, (about 2 miles) every single day, I am on multiple work out routines better than what most non-athletes do, such as fitness and conditioning drill camps and other things designed to push me to be a state champion on my wrestling team. I've been on an improved alternate day fasting diet.
Ddespite my best efforts, I either gain 20 pounds one week, or lose a mere 1 pound every 2 weeks.
It's safe to say no matter what I do I'm steadily gaining weight for an unknown reason.
I know plenty of anorexic kids that have NO diet, and don't work out at all, and typically eat a lot.
Whereas I don't eat ANYTHING every other day, and eat little, and I mean little, the other days. I eat just enough to be healthy, yet I feel stuffed whenever I eat.
I might have this virus.
JoeRoccoCassara got a reaction from Pyrotex in Does God exist?
Our feeble human intellects constructed hope that would make us what we are today, masters of survival, the most powerful organisms on the face of the planet, with a high chance of being the smartest creatures in the universe, the most evolved brains around, constructed God.
And this God that comes in MANY forms, however imaginary, has made us creatures of steel, we mourned the dead because we believed we would see them again, we were not afraid of creatures, the wrath of nature, the evil of ourselves because we believed that all of it was petty compared to God, and that we could make God on our side, and over come obstacles, break boundaries other creatures couldn't comprehend.
This has left a fatal flaw, if we do not start seeing science as the new God, our fearlessness will get us killed, our sureness of dominion over all we see, will make us underestimate, our belief that God will do our work for us will make us stop working ourselves.
The thing about science is, it works, it's the reality, it might not be as forgiving, but effective. More so than shrines and prayers, fake protectors and false rulers.

There was a little quiz I took at the end of this year, it said Math, Science and Cosmology were my strongest subjects.
I have to admit school work is pretty easy when I'm working out flaws with you guys on this site.
JoeRoccoCassara got a reaction from modest in Why is the universe flying apart?
What is the exact explanation of the universe's expansion?
The big bang, the expansion from one dot to everything we know, It has not stopped, but it has sped up, every atom is slowly moving further away from one another, and it seems that the further they get from each other, the faster they move.
I believe that our universe is the fireball from which a collision of two infinitely cold and large parallel branes spawned, and that everything we see is as hot as fire to the branes that collided.
I believe the expansion will stop when every atom is erased from existence. It has been proven that atoms do disappear, data is lost in black holes. I believe that this is because they dissipate and cool until they turn into what ever the void that existed before our universe was made out of.
There is a more than great chance that I am wrong.
